Re: Καλό μήνα

Nice one Jeff and I especially ike the colour contrast between the flowers and panelling. Shame the picture on the wall isn't straight though.

Re: Kalo Paska

Yeah it's all go here ...the dogs are hiding under the desk in the back room .. They're obviously not Labradors. I had a couple in the UK and Bonfire Night was hell. At the first bang they were at the door scrabbling to escape to go retrieving. At any other time the only time I had a problem was a ...

Re: Looking for dentist on Andrea Papandreou, Xania

...very thorough, careful, does what's necessary and doesn't suggest extra treatment that's not really necessary. Fees are very reasonable... I am sure it is not universal but that does seem to be quite common here........... Yes, Giorgios in Vamos is much the same (as was Zografakis, opposite Body...

Re: rent or buy?

I though that the minimum living in period was 6 months buy it's a long time since I checked...

Re: Looking for dentist on Andrea Papandreou, Xania

Thank you Warwick - he is the one we were looking for. So who do you go to now, Filippos if you don't mind me asking? For about 18 months went to Milonakis in Nearchou St, Xania: good but very expensive; in the couple of years since then have been very happy with treatment by Giorgios Papadogiorgak...

Re: rent or buy?

I was an ‘accidental landlord’ in the U.K. for 11 years; avoided paying any tax at all on the capital gain by spending a night in the property after the last tenant had left and before it was sold. I’m sure a good accountant will think of a way of avoiding this new tax. I suspect HMRC has become a ...

Re: Car service

There's also a new* place in Kalyves, just after the plateia on the left, about 30 to 50 metres past the old shop of Farma greengrocery. I don't know anyone who has been there but there always seems to be a vehicle being worked on so the man has attracted quite a few customers. I'm sure you could pe...

Warwick is right; we used to go there. There is a lift but I always found it quicker to use the stairs.

Oh yes, what a silly-billy.
Can't even blame it on the Tsikoudia, at 9.30 in the morning.

Re: rent or buy?

I have no idea whether or not the following is relevant to anyone here but there are new taxes being introduced on sale of property in the UK from April next year. If you only have one property there's no problem - no CGT on the proceeds of sale and, currently, the same applies if you own two or mor...

Re: rent or buy?

Things have changed then since we sold our house here. We paid just estate agent's and lawyer's fees. Did you make unauthorised changes to your property that made it illegal? I know several who have done so either through ignorance of the regulations or knew the rules and ignored them. I'd be intere...
